Thanks.....test fitting the engine in a mocked up chassis.
Looks like all is well...it even fits neatly under the hood.

Some of you eagle eyed guys may have noticed that there isn't a very deep oil pan and no dip stick on this engine.
That's because there isn't one......it'll have a separate oil reservoir and external oil lines, cooler & filters.
I'll probably be using disc brakes on all four corners..so here's a quick sketch showing how I'm going to deal with the hand brake.

A stock '41 Willys has a 104" wheelbase.....I've set this model chassis at 14", that should scale out to around 112".
I dug through the TDR parts box & came up with a front clip that's wider than the one on the previous mock-up.
Now the width will be where I want it without having to use spacers or reversed rims.
